Content: After recently presenting the "best of 25 years", Rüdiger Hoffmann now returns to the stage with new numbers from his ninth program. "although..." shows the comedian from Paderborn in top form. For example, Hoffmann takes an amusing look at the service desert of Germany and reveals what can happen if a smart city shirt is not professionally put together. Or he reveals the horror of a couple's holiday and explains the advantages of being over 40.
With his amusing everyday observations, Rüdiger Hoffmann returns to his roots. Not every gag works (some side blows to the current pop culture, like the size of Sarah Connor's ex, for example, he could have saved himself because they seem a bit stilted) and you can't really say after looking at this program that Hoffmann has developed great. But that should not be seen as negative. After all, Hoffmann offers his fans exactly what they expect from him: many new jokes in the style they have come to love! And there's really nothing wrong with that.
Who wants to know what happens when Olaf and Birte get married, who wants to know more about "Ladies on the Dancefloor" or thinks about joining the "Club of Anxious Men", can't miss this DVD. Even if there are some rather pale jokes to be heard besides the many successful laughs, "although..." is a very good start into the next 25 years for Rüdiger Hoffmann! Therefore an absolute must for fans!
Picture + sound: The clean, clear picture and the harmoniously mixed stereo sound are exactly on the level that a live comedy DVD should offer. Good!
Extras: The DVD has more than half an hour of extras to offer. In addition to an interesting look behind the scenes, two new songs can be heard in four additional numbers. In addition there is a reunion with little Vacek, who also suffered from the financial crisis, and an amusing telephone conversation with the "cool" Rocky. Worth seeing!
Result: "although..." is a must for all fans of Rüdiger Hoffmann. With many amusing new numbers, a "reunion" with some well-known characters and the typical Rüdiger Hoffmann flair, this ninth live program is again a real hit. The DVD is technically on a good level and has some very nice bonus material for fans. Therefore this disc should not be missing in any good Rüdiger Hoffmann collection!
